Finished Object: Leg Warmers

I really liked this pattern but I would definitely make this taller and wider in future projects. Also, I might try to make the stitches a bit tighter so you see a little less between the holes, etc.

The pattern itself worked up super quick and really was pretty. There are suggestions on how to modify the pattern and general suggestions in the comments section. I highly recommend reading through those since the pattern creator was super helpful to people that asked questions within the page comments.

 I have a few more of these in my queue for some friends and family so i'll be making modifications. I didn't end up adding buttons because I felt like with the dark yarn I used, the shells stitching didn't really stand out as much as I thought it would. I liked the more uniform look.

Finished Object: Little Santa Sack Hat - but not really santa

I loved this pattern but wanted to try it with some yarn I had been saving for a project for my little one. It came out really cute even though I had to restart multiple times (I didn't read/pay attention). I highly recommend the pattern for 3 and under. It's adorable and works up fast.



Finished Object: emma the bunny (mint)

she might be one of the "first pancakes" that i care about the most. She isn't perfect, but she is so special. I made her for my mom as a recovery present. She was started in a hospital room and this week I was so grateful to be able to give it to her and make her smile.

The pattern is from TOFT and I am already in love with all of their animals. The pattern was really clear though I did learn the difference between UK and US hooks sizes and stitches. I added eyelashes :-) I think I would use a heavier yarn when I make this in the future.

Diamond Eyelet Scarf: First FO for 2015

I made a Diamond Eyelet Scarf as a holiday gift. I didn't see the person until after X-mas so I had a little more time to finish it up. I used a bulky yarn instead of a lightweight one which made it pretty big. I like the finished result but would be eager to try it in a lighter weight yarn. I highly recommend the pattern...easy to follow and really works up quickly.
